Working with an interior designer

When beginning any project it is important that it reflects the people who will make it their home.

You know a home, when you are in one because you feel it straight away. lt is a presence created by a balance of many parts. In fact, the creative act of a designer is in melding a myriad of components.

Many of you may feel that you are unsure of where to start.

Engaging an lnterior Designer like myself will save you time, money & expensive mistakes as I am able to source a wide range of products, furniture, curtains, blinds, shutters & accessories often not easily available to you.

A beginning point may be to look around your home or in magazines & perhaps see a particular colour that you intuitively feel comfortable with. This could be in a painting or even the clothes you wear.

When I choose colours it is not because of any scientific theory, it comes from an intuitive sense of feeling in which the colours will sit & belong.

The design will also depend on a number of factors including space, proportion, light & texture & harmony.

 

An example of this is where there is one design premise which says that small rooms, particularly that are dark, should be decorated light colours to open them up & make them less confining. This argument is often used to justify decorating hallways in neutral shades.

You can however take a contrary approach, if you use bright colours, it is better to accept the limitations & give them a jewel like brillance which compensates for the the lack of space & light.

Passion, energy, creativity & perseverance sometimes feel like rare birds in a world of instant images & results.

I have always believed in well considered design, consultation & collaboration with my clients.

My quest is always to come up with something original that reflects your individual personality. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you in the future.
